Sweet and intensely fruity on the nose. The jammy full red fruit recalls gummy bears! There’s integrate oak spice here that lends a rather cinnamon tone to the nose, but ultimately reveals a very deep and complex array of aromatics. A touch soft in the mouth, this exhibits lovely richness. The framing spices of the nose help to delineate the rich, powerful dark fruits on the palate. Shows a touch of dried plummy richness and remains a bit chunky and chewy through the modest finish. This is a wine of power and should improve with additional cellaring. 92pts

I love it. It is a classical style, mixed with a touch of modernity. The color is deep, but pretty evolutioned. Bright, special. The aroma is complex, hard to define, difficult to explain. In the mouth, long sensation, deep too. Elegant. arrogant too. Old and young... both. I love it.

Lovely - classic rioja, with lots of mouth-filling fruit. Terrific, enticing nose, that doesn't lead to a disppointment. Best wine of 20 tasted on the night (including a couple at twice theprice).

One of the best wines that Murrietta ever made! Maybe a bit to oaky for traditionalists.

Really liked this. Not too oakey considering its been aged in barrels for a long time but the warm raspberry is not lost amongst its other qualities, spice, toast and even a slight meaty component. Very nice.

It is still, 30 years on, stunning, delicate, with cherry fruit, accented by tobacco, raisin and balsamic notes, and just velvety smooth and delicious.

The 2004 Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial is not yet in the market. It spent 29 months in American oak, the first 10 in new barrels. It is a fragrant, enticing, already complex offering that will continue to evolve in the bottle for several more years. Rich, savory, and ripe, this beautifully balanced wine will also have a 30+ year lifespan.
